ICE PATCH +is an ice patch product with cold preservation and thermochromic gel coming with elastic hook & loop fastener or bandage. Users can attach multiple cold preservation gels along the shape of the injured part. Small unit of cold preservation gel can improve skin frostbite; the KT tape and bandage of silicone base can prevent skin allergies in the elderly and infants & avoid frostbite caused by direct contact between ice and the skin. Thermochromic microcapsules can demonstrate the change of temperature by color. Users can adjust the cold preservation gel by observing color change.
